Well there is a break in the grey weather so far today. Blue skies and sunshine. My eldest seems a little better but not enough to go to school, it's only a summer bug though so nothing to worry about. I'm kinda thinking it's only a matter of time my youngest catches the bug too Fingers crossed he doesn't though.

As for me I am having alot of better days now, I have some bloodtests on Friday so I'll know where things are early next week.

Not much sleep last night , my youngest was up at 3AM and wouldn't go back to bed! Where is Binger with coffee when you need him lol!!

Oh by the way BEST OF LUCK RYAN with your interview today, praying for a positive outcome for you!

Have a great day everyone xxxx
Thinking of you both, friend!!

Glad you are doing much better!

((Hugs))

oh, other exciting news...I am part of a free cycle group where people give away stuff they no longer want, or ask if anyone has something they may need. Anyway this ad appeared this morning...

I'm moving to BC and I can't take it all with me. I know this is last minute but it needs to be picked up by Friday.

Wrapping paper, ornaments, lights, garland, wreath, Christmas tree, and other goodies. Take some, take all.

Please reply with times you can pick up.

I told her I would take it all! Now just waiting for an answer.

Hope your Mom's appointment goes well, CS.

Have a safe trip & enjoy your visit!!

I heard that about Calgary, too :/ My friend has family there. They are all in my prayers.

Good morning!
How is everyone doing?
I am doing well, still trying to recover from our super busy week that just passed. I had hoped things would slow down for me after my daughters prom and graduation but there is never a dull moment in this house. Always something to do or somewhere to be. But its all good. I just wish I had more time to post here. I feel like everytime I start to type something I have to stop to do something, lol. But I read the countdown when ever I can so I know whats going on with all of you. I read from my phone when I'm walking the dogs or waiting in my car for my daughter to get out of work or even on line in the supermarket!
Anyway, typical day here. Daily chores and errands. My youngest started drivers ed yesterday and that will be everyday for about a month. I'm hoping she does well with the instructor because I am still a nervous wreck when I drive with her.
Nothing else is really new with me. I am still exhausted all of the time, I assume its from lack of sleep. I know I mentioned that I went for my physical and blood work and everything was good. I am scheduled for an echocardiogram this Wednesday morning so hopefully that will go well too.
I hope everyone is doing great and has a wonderful day!!!
